: define perspective: do you subjective frame of reference? why need there be hierarchies? a hierarchy is an ordering according to importance. how do we attach value to a perspective?

Good questions all. Well, perspectives *are*
valueble, aren't they? They have value by the very fact they exist. We'd know nothing
without them.

: also, W: was reading recently that the Universe before the big bang existed in 26 dimensions, then split into 2 universes, one of 4 dimensions (ours) and one of six dimensions. somewhere out there are a group of six dimensional philosophers wondering how phenomenology would work in four dimensions... :P

How could *any* dimensions have existed "before" the BB? Dimensions exist
in space. Both time and space came into being *with* the BB. Time and space could not have existed before they existed.
